The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund will be hosting a Virtual K-8 School Choice Fair to help families in the region learn about their school options.
During the virtual fair, which takes place 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 30, families will have the opportunity to visit with representatives of each school, learn about the needs-based scholarships available, and ask questions.
Schools from the following Northwest Ohio counties will be represented: Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood or Wyandot. Each participating school will have its own Zoom breakout room at the fair.
“One thing that the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us is that school choice is very important,” said Ann Riddle, executive director at the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund. “The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund is excited to present its annual school choice school fair virtually during National School Choice Week and bring those choices to parents in the comfort of their homes.”

National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on effective education options for children and is the world’s largest celebration of opportunity in K-12 education.
As a not-for-profit effort, we focus equally on traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and home education options. We are nonpolitical and nonpartisan, and we do not advocate for legislation.
Every January, our participants plan tens of thousands of events and activities – such as school fairs, open houses, and student showcases – to raise awareness about school choice across all 50 states. Year-round, National School Choice Week develops resources and guides to assist families searching for schools or learning environments for their children.
